Summary

"For decades Mike Filey has regaled readers with stories of Toronto's past through its landmarks, neighborhoods, streetscapes, social customs, pleasure palaces, politics, sporting events, celebrities, and defining moments. Now, in one illustrated volume, he serves up the best of his meditations on everything from the Flatiron Building, Casa Loma, and the Cathedral Church of St. James to the Royal Alexandria Theatre, the Palais Royale, Union Station, and the Canadian National Exhibition, with streetcar jaunts through North Toronto and along the Danforth and ferry excursions in Lake Ontario, as well as trips down memory lane with the likes of Mary Pickford, Glenn Miller, Oscar Peterson, and Marilyn Bell, to name only a few." "Filey recounts the devastation of city disasters such as Hurricane Hazel and the Great Fire of 1904 and spins yarns about the city's old water tanks, Easter in Toronto, the early Toronto Maple Leafs, the battles over the airport on the Toronto Islands, and how both world wars affected Torontonians."--BOOK JACKET.
